Cracked Tooth

Teeth crack because of a diversity of reasons, including teeth grinding, chewing or biting hard foods, such as ice, nuts, or dried squid. Once it happens, it only gets deeper and it may lead to extraction so it needs to be examined and treated properly. 

Symptoms of the crack tooth are;

 

  • Pain when chewing or biting, especially when you release the bite.

  • Sensitivity to heat, cold, or sweetness.

  • Pain that comes and goes but is hardly continuous.

  • Swelling of the gum around the affected tooth.

Minor Crack/Chip Treatment

Tooth trimming and crowning will prevent extraction or root canal treatment.
